Motor Learning in Individuals With Lower Limb Loss and Chronic Diabetes

Inadequate rehabilitation training after amputation can result in poor patient outcomes, injuries, and wasted healthcare resources. This is a serious public health problem due to an aging population and rising prevalence of diabetes (main cause of amputation in the U.S.). In this study, the investigators will examine the effects of …

The Effect of Different Microprocessor Knee Prostheses on Mobility and Gait Parameters in Transfemoral Amputees

Microprocessor knee joints are prosthetic knee joints with an integrated processor or a computer that can analyze data. During walking, parameters such as step speed, joint angles, and weight transferred through sensors are analyzed by the computer inside the joint and determines the movement for the safest and most normal …

Optimizing Prosthetic and Bicycle Fit for Veterans With Transtibial Amputations

Bicycling is a promising form of low-impact exercise that could prevent/treat Type 2 diabetes. However, Veterans with transtibial amputations (TTAs) may not effectively utilize bicycling for rehabilitation and exercise due to improper bike fit, socket discomfort, and/or the potential for injury. An optimized prosthetic/bicycle fit could improve comfort and reduce …

Does Walking Performance Improve When Veterans With Leg Amputations Are Given Visual Feedback?

Previous studies suggest that Veterans with below the knee amputation using passive-elastic or powered prostheses have impaired physical function, which could increase the risk of osteoarthritis, leg/back pain, and diabetes/obesity. Utilization of rehabilitation strategies/techniques such as real-time visual feedback training could restore physical function, increase physical activity, and reduce injury …
